Sometimes disasters can put you in a place where you are separated from your family, friends, or co-workers. It’s a good idea to put together a communications plan to have those important numbers written down somewhere in case your phone goes dead.
Put a communications list in your child’s backpack for when they are at school or away. Practice this communications plan to help everyone become more familiar.
You should also have a communication plan with out of state contacts in case local cell towers become overwhelmed during an emergency.
Having a communications plan at work is helpful as well, just in case you need to call someone, or if some needs to call for you if you are unable to.
Put In Case of Emergency or ICE in front of contacts within your phone for those you would like to be called if you were unable to call yourself, this would be good for yourself, children, co-workers, or first responders.
